The International Cricket Council (ICC) have announced a stellar line-up of commentators for the upcoming ICC World Cup 2019. England and Wales will host the tournament starting from 30 where England will face South Africa in the tournament opener at the Oval. Meanwhile, the iconic Lord’s Cricket Ground will host the final of the marquee event on July 14. Besides, the apex body is also undertaking various steps to make the game more interesting for the fans and are looking forward to engaging them more.
Meanwhile, ICC TV will produce live coverage of all the games over the next one and a half month. Also, they will broadcast the ten practice matches before the start of the World Cup for the first time. The apex body have planned to install minimum of 32 cameras in the stadium during the game time. It will include eight ultra-motion Hawk-Eye cameras, front and reverse view stump cameras and Spidercam. The upcoming six weeks will be a treat for cricket lovers.
The broadcast will also produce 360 degrees replays for the first time in World Cricket. The drone camera provided by Batcam will also offer stunning visuals of all venues across England and Wales. There will be a roving Buggy Cam as well, for a ground-level view of an ongoing game.
On the other hand, the long list of commentators features former cricketers and eminent broadcaster from across the globe. Australia’s last World Cup-winning skipper Michael Clarke will make his debut in ICC TV commentary. He will partner former greats like Nasser Hussain, Ian Bishop, Sourav Ganguly, Melanie Jones, Kumar Sangakkara, Michael Atherton, Alison Mitchell, Brendon McCullum, Graeme Smith and Wasim Akram to name a few.
It will surely be a treasure hunt for the fans when the tournament kicks off on May 30.
